My W212

First thanks for a great forum. Really learnig something new every day.

Bought this car new in 2013. Its a E250 and I do like chrome, so there are a few chrome uppgrades on it.

Aftermarket grill with the big star and flat bonnet badge

Rims are named Cattivo.
Front: 20x9 ET-35 with 245/30/20 Vredestein ULTRAC SESSANTA
Back: 20x10 ET-40 with 295/25/20 Vredestein ULTRAC SESSANTA

Just put on lowering kit. H&R 35mm or 1,4 inch, lowering springs. Really happy with those and do think I have a good flush fitment on the car.

Uppgraded Xenon lights 6000k and Position lights led 6000k.

Have put on a Pedalbox for a more responsive throttle pedal and have taken a ECU Optimization so gained a few more horses and torque.

Really love the car and thinks it stands out abit from the croud here in Norway. It has turned some heads here.

Some Pics from today after a good wash and wax.







Really sorry for the big pics. Dont know why they are this big and the bad English.

@bigigg:
Its thanks to you members here. Many hours reading posts from you and others to get this right the first time. Thanks.

@BenzV12:
Thanks . Do really like chrome on black cars, it makes the chrome pop if you know what i mean. Have seen yours to and it is a pearl. Not many of us that like chrome I think. On these pics the car is lowered and waxed. Pain but when done looks good as he..
The wonderfull world of Ebay that I came over the headlight washers, so I took a chance and got them.

After 6 hours of work Im pleased with the outcome. It was plenty of contamination in the paint and could feel it like mountain tops there. Plus alot of swirls after machine wash in the winter. Almost no reflection and shine, But alot of work and dedication solved the case.

@Arrie: Those are not genuine AMG tips Im afraid, but I love the shape of them, more than the stock ones.

@BM2BZ: Thanks. My wife drove off to the shop and got back, Dirty again, just dust so easy pesy to wipe off again, Hehe

So how did you get the swirls out?

I have some and bought some Meguiar's Ultimate Compound, but haven't applied it yet.

@mystery905: I did use Megs ultimate compound actually . Very good product. After that i went on with Megs swirlX just in case. This is just a filler.

Little work trough.
Degreasing
Good wash
Soap with "Megs NTX shampo"
Wash off
On the rims i use "Megs Hot rims, All wheel cleaner"
Wash off
Masked upp the car
Then I used in this order:
"Megs Clay"
"Megs Ultimate Compound"
"Megs SwirlX"
"Megs Deep Crystal Paint Cleaner"
"Megs Deep Crystal Carnauba Wax"
Let the car sit for a moment.
Exhaust did I use "Megs Metal Polish"
On wheels did I put on "Megs NTX Insane Shine"
Went over with "Megs Ultimate Detailer"
Wipe off with a microfiber cloth and se the shine until you next trip.

Lots of chrome and my feeling is that there needs to be lots of it or none at all.


And it goes best, if not only, with black.


O.P.'s car looks awesome!

Sweet ride! Nice tips. Although I think you forgot to include the car in your last photo. All I see is a hand waving in front of a mirror.
